Coming of Age With Climate Change: An Honest Conversation with Daniel Sherrell

“Every march is an act of faith in this way: you have to trust your story will braid into history, even if you’ll never be able to tease out its thread.”

 

Many books have been written about climate change but Daniel Sherrell's first book is a hauntingly personal account about fighting for a world that may not exist for future generations. Warmth: Coming of Age at the End of Our World -- part memoir, part critical analysis, part love letter -- lays bare the realities of climate change pleading with readers to act courageously to alter the narrative in front of them.

Sherrell is a climate activist and organizer currently serving as the Campaign Director for the Climate Jobs National Resource Center. He helped lead the campaign to pass landmark climate justice legislation in New York and is the recipient of a Fulbright grant in creative nonfiction. Warmth is his first book.
